First impression is that it now is fitted with a 288 or 327 engine. What else?

John, it is frightfully expensive ($148,765.00).

I have never figured out how those particular pieces of factory equipment will all fit in a violin case, yet no self respecting gangster movie is ever shown without. A viola or bass violin case, maybe.

Howard, that's the reason why Joe is mentioning James Hollingsworth.

The Hollingsworth book confirms that Packard never issued a traditional 1940 Service Manual.
Look, the above shown Thompson automatic gun M1928A1 with ElectroMatic clutch and muzzle brake, the so-called "Chicago typewriter" has been available as travel typewriter according to the

-->1940 Illustrated Tune-Up Repair Manual.

It contains a general overview of Thompson products. The related muzzel brake is pictured in the

--> Bendix Brake Service Bulletin.
